When Francesco decides to embark on his first trip outside his native Italy, he leaves behind a difficult relationship with his father, the narrow vistas of a small provincial town and the stifling atmosphere of a country he feels has become degraded. All he brings with him are a change of clothes, a map of Europe and the desire to discover new places, new people and, perhaps, a new life. But a chance encounter in Munich takes him off course, on an incredible journey that will see him fall in love in Sweden, lose all his money in Amsterdam, sleep rough in London, win big in Monte Carlo and get caught up in an international imbroglio.
Born out of the authorís own experiences as a young InterRail traveller, this modern picaresque novel is a celebration of a life of freedom and a Europe without boundaries.
